How to Measure for Rail Pads

The easiest way to measure for rail pads is to start by drawing a simple diagram of the rails. Then remove any existing vinyl and padding, and write down these measurements:

· At ground level, measure from the ground to the bottom of the highest rail. (Fig. A)

· At ground level, measure left to right, from the inside to the inside of the farthest rails. (Fig. B)

· If there is a horizontal center rail, measure from the top of the center rail to the bottom of the top rail. (Fig. C)

· If there is a horizontal bottom rail, measure from the top of the bottom rail to the bottom of the center rail. (Fig. D)

· Measure from the ground to the bottom of the lowest rail (Fig. E) and/or from the ground to the bottom of the center rail (Fig. F).

· Measure the circumference around the top rail (Fig. G), and the circumference of the vertical and horizontal posts. (Fig. H)

· Provide the number (#) of vertical posts.

· Indicate whether the top rail corners are square or curved.

· Provide a digital photo, along with your measurements.

One thing to remember is that it is better to provide too much information than not enough. - "We've got you padded!"
